Can you get rid of Cellulite?

cellulite removal

You might have heard about cellulite reduction treatments but is Cellulite? To begin, there is a huge network of connective-tissue strands underneath your skin known as septae that helps hold fat in place. If the septae are not strong and tightly woven together genetically, the fat can easily bulge out between them, creating ripples on the skin’s surface also known as a cellulite.

Because half of the cellulite is fat, most would assume that losing weight through exercise and diet would help. However, it highly depends on the elasticity of your skin. In the case that your skin bounces back after the weight loss, you will notice cellulite reduction. But if your skin is not quite so resilient, it can sag and will make the bumps look worse.

Below outlines a few procedures that could help;

  1. VelaShape® III

VelaShape® III is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction*. VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 3 treatment sessions making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.  VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment. VelaShape uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2.


It’s the first FDA approved treatment for cellulite reduction, the procedure involves a small laser tube that’s inserted under the patient’s skin. As the laser tube heats up, it melts the lumpy fat pockets and helps softens the fiber bands of connective tissue that will help hold them together. This treatment can substantially minimize the appearance of cellulites. But the major drawback is that the procedure can cost you more than 5,000 dollars and, depending on how large the treatment area is, it can be quite the time commitment.

Coffee Scrubs

Coffee scrubs contain caffeine as a core ingredient, which helps a lot in lymphatic drainage and thus helps smooth out the appearance of the skin. Coffee scrubs helps in exfoliating your skin and along with it, the caffeine adds some shrinkage to the fat cells. Similarly with so many other creams, you are going to use a coffee scrub once a day for the finest results.

Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is a procedure that has been around since ages. All it requires is a stiff-bristled brush with gentle pressure on dry skin, by brushing upwards towards the heart, focusing on your cellulite-prone areas to stimulate the lymphatic system it exfoliates the skin, boosts circulation and elasticity, and thus it helps reduces the appearance of the cellulite.
